The world’s toughest sailing competition – the Volvo Ocean Race – is already in full swing. The extreme racing yachts are sailing round the world before finally finishing in Gothenburg harbour on 21-28 June.

The main partners for the keenly anticipated exciting and fast-paced finishing leg are Gothia Towers and the Swedish Exhibition Congress Centre, who will operate and be responsible for the event’s culinary experience and exhibition area by the finishing line in Frihamnen. It will be a massive party – open to everyone, with free admission.

The event venue, Race Village, is located at Södra Frihamnspiren, in the heart of Gothenburg harbour. A truly unique event venue, known to many as the “Banana Pier” and famous for events such as the STCC City Race, the Metal Town music festival and The Docks summer club.

During the Volvo Ocean Race’s climax, 21-28 June, Gothia Towers will build three restaurants where visitors and crew will be able to enjoy everything from a glass of champagne in a nightclub environment to a grab-and-go sandwich while on the move. Almost 150 people are expected to be working in the Frihamnen restaurant area over these days, at the coolest event of the year.

Enjoy the party

Come and celebrate: 21-28 June – free admission every day.
